Re: In the Vault but not in circulation?
My interest was piqued as well when I saw 6/22/68, and thought of the resemblance to the feb 68 bit that Lemieux put up. I really like that one, vocals or no, I'd love to hear the rest, if there is any.
Knowing that there is an uncirculated 68 Alligator almost makes me want to cry...when the '68 Road Trips came out, we got a couple Viola Lee's, I'd have easily taken only one if it meant getting that Alligator!
I agree that it is frustrating re: 5/3/69, 6/20/69. I haven't taken the time to stream what Lemieux has put up, I think it'd be too painful, knowing that there is probably more there. The full 6/4/70 sure would be nice, too. I also wonder if more from 6/5/70 is in there, that's a really nice one, fortunately the AUD is pretty good.
What about 2/5 and 2/8/70? I wonder if more of those exist? Esp 2/5, one can only wonder what went on between Mason's and The Eleven.
Unless there is a Dark Star, Other One, or Alligator from 9/6/69, I'm not too worried about that one. What we do have isn't really anything special, aside from a nice He Was a Friend of Mine. And the era overall was hit or miss, nothing from those Family Dog 69 shows has ever really grabbed me.
I don't recall ANYthing about 6/12/70, did he put up the Other One on the Taper's Section? I'm going to have to look into that one.
For me, one of the holy grails is 3/26/72...Charlie Miller once said he felt it was the best show of the run. Of course he may have just been saying that because he has it and wanted to rub it in lol. Apparently he was told not to circulate it, which is a real shame. I would kill to hear that Other One jam. Personally I don't think the Sugar Magnolia>Other One from 3/28 that they put on the Dick's Picks is really all that great, even though I've never heard it I'd have preferred they put the jam from 3/26 on there.
I would also LOVE a full copy of 3/25 to come out, I think we're missing a decent amount of the Bo Diddley set, in soundboard at least. I really like what circulates from that show from the aud tape (Smokestack, Lonely for Me, which I wish they would have done more of and stretched out on like so many great Garcia versions of the era, etc). One of the AUD's from that show is pretty listenable.
Anyway I think it's probably pretty unanimous that while we probably have the best stuff from that run out there, I think we would all love to hear everything that's there. Someday, perhaps, someday...
Lastly, 5/29/71...I generally don't get too worked up about much of anything from the first half of 71 in terms of what might be missing (1/22), but that is one I'd love to hear. Though I am curious what is on the 3/17 reel.
Deadlist also has a pretty tasty setlist listed for 1/21/71, "without Mickey." Does that even exist?
What is this talk about an 11/16/70 Good Lovin??? In soundboard? I don't think I've ever heard anything about that? Then again I always get 11/11, 11/16, 11/20 and 11/23 confused, on top of the general confusion already surrounding 11/16 or 23. 1970 is just one bi clusterf*&k of confusion, ain't it? Like the July Fillmore shows...I suspect the "11th or 12th" debate will never end.
Isn't the LMA also missing little bits of some of the auds of the Port Chester shows from november?
